Anthony Theakston
"Little Pelican" Contemporary Bronze Sculpture Portrait of a Pelican, Bird

2020

$3,375Asking Price

About

British sculptor Anthony Theakston (1965), who draws his inspiration from the shape and movement of birds, simplifies the birds and omits more and more details until only the essence of the animal remains. The stylized birds are reduced to a contrast between curves and angular shapes. The result is a sleek and expressive shape that beautifully reflects the bird's character. It is of great importance to Anthony that his work is ultimately beautiful, to see and to touch. It’s not just about the bird, it’s about its character. Despite the fact that this copper colored ''Little Pelican'' has an edition of 12, every piece has a different patina which makes each bronze unique. Anthony Theakston's work is widely acclaimed and collected in his home country, the UK, and is increasingly in demand worldwide. The British Council, the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford and the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, among others, own his work. His work is recognized by many as the antiques of the future.
